Hollies Golf: Nine years later and still going

Golf aficionado Pat Little spills it about the golf going's on at Hollies.

Jackie and I have entered our ninth year owning and operating the Hollies Golf Course.

During that time, we have hosted numerous golf outings, but never one of our own, until last Friday, when we had our first Mixer (he/she) golf event.

While plagued by rain and no shows, we still had a near full house.  The outing was built around a unique golf theme on each hole and designed to be fun and purposely laid back in nature.  We want to thank everyone who showed up as well as our sponsor Tim Horton’s.

The full moon has an affect on many people and golfers are no exception.   On Men’s Night, it came out and reared it head reflecting itself in the way of  higher than normal scores.

Emerging out of the pack, however, was Brian Isaac who showed no indifference toward it by scoring a two over par 32.  There were four others who scored 36’s for second and out of discomfort and embarrassment to them, I shall refrain from listing the runnersup.

In the net category however, newcomer Kelly Bauer shot a five under par 25 to win convincingly over runnerup Richard Allen who scored a one under par 29.  Ron Lange won the deuce pot on hole No. 8, but no one took it on No. 3, vaulting the pot to over $180 for next week there.  Dave Mann won two K.P.’s along with Lange, Ed Byrne, Taylore Hillton, Warren Longeuay, and Barry MacMillan.

We have new leaders in the Remax player of the year point total with Dale Clarke and Ron Lange tying for the lead, while in the Howard Johnson Ringerboard competition, Lange has taken over with a three under par score of 27, followed closely by Ken Moore at 28.

The season is still in its infancy and we have raised over $800 for our charity — Ty Watson House. Thanks to all of you and especially Port Alberni’s great business owners and operators!  You all are the best.
